The Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre is a unique opportunity to experience diverse artistic programming in what has become one of Toronto’s most exciting cultural hubs. Six inspiring series offer concerts, dance performances and engaging presentations that feature both up-and-coming young artists and established international stars. All performances are FREE to the public, with admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Concertgoers are encouraged to arrive early as late seating is not available.
12 – 1:00 pm. Toronto vocalist Shannon Butcher and her powerhouse quartet celebrate the sophisticated ladies of song who brought swing and style to the golden age of jazz. Acclaimed for her sultry vocals and sassy sense of fun, Butcher’s distinctive style is steeped in the great tradition of legendary ladies like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, yet possesses a contemporary sensibility and sophistication all her own.
